There seems to be some significance to the east in the Scriptures.

In some places it seems to have a negative connotation. For example, in the opening chapters of Genesis, moving eastward seems to signify moving into wickedness. But then in other places it seems like righteousness comes from the east. What associations would “east” have had? Is there some common symbolic significance to it?
